Many people in this world wonder how to earn money online, its natural because every human want to earn more for his or her comfort. But most of us would have failed because the methods to earn online that are available on the internet are either scam or those earn negligible amount for us. But earning online is not really impossible if you do some market research and also some hard work.
One of the easiest and sure way to earn money online is by creating our own website and monetizing it by placing ads, affiliate links on the website. But most people do not opt for this method for two reasons, one is that they cannot afford to pay for the domain registration and web hosting, second one is that they have no time for maintaining the website. So if you belong to the first category where you cannot afford paid hosting, then here is a easy solution for you.
There are lots of websites available on internet that allow you free domain registration and free web hosting. But before starting a website you will have to find a niche or a topic for your website in which you are good or you know more than other people. The reason for this is, if the topic you chose is of your interest you will never lose interest in that and you can write as much as you want. Do not worry if there are thousand other websites on the topic you chose, you can later improvise on your contents.
First thing you need to do is domain name registration, think of a name that reflects your niche, do not chose a very long name so that people will find difficult to remember that name. The site I suggest is co.cc for free domain registration. Once you chose a domain name find out if that name is available or already taken by someone else. On registering your domain name you need to do add the name server of your web host. To do this you need to set up an account at any free web hosting site. I suggest x10hosting or awardspace.
Once you create a account at the hosting site you will have to find out its name server and assign the same at the domain name setting panel. Usually the name server will look like this “ns1.x10hosting.com”. If you are done with this much you are half done with your website.
Next what you can do is install WordPress into your site, WordPress is a content management site using which you can create a blog kind of website. You can also use other clients like Joomla, Drupal etc. But I suggest WordPress as it is more flexible and easy to use. You can customize WordPress easily.
After installing WordPress you can start posting articles on your site. Now to earn money from your site you need to sign up with ad publishing agencies like Google AdSense, AdBrite, Clixor, etc. AdBrite would be a good choice for beginners as Google won’t accept fresh sites. You can also sign up with affiliates like commission junction, click bank etc. You will have to place their link on your website and you will get commission for the products sold through your website. There are people who survive only from the income they get from their website. There are people who earn around $5000 per month just from the ads. So this is the easy method for earning through internet.
But the main factor for the success of a website is to get traffic, so research internet and find out which method of website marketing suits you and start earning.
